NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2015) - Work Market, the leading on-demand marketplace for independent professionals, today announced that president and co-founder Jeff Wald will be speaking on a panel during the upcoming On-Demand Conference on Tuesday, September 15, 2015 at the AMC Empire 25 in New York City.

The On-Demand Conference is designed to gather entrepreneurs, innovators, investors and industry leaders for a robust discussion about the on-demand economy and its impact on both the future of work and local commerce. During the event, high-profile companies such as Uber and Airbnb will share their expertise on a number of different topics impacting the on-demand economy, including evolving business models, venture capital investment and more.

Drawing on his expertise in the on-demand space, Wald will share his insights in a session titled, "B2B: The Next Wave of On-demand Services." He will join a panel discussion moderated by Harrison Weber, executive editor of VentureBeat, and including Antony Brydon, CEO of Directly, and Rob Biederman, CEO of HourlyNerd.

Wald co-founded Work Market in 2010 with the goal of transforming how businesses and freelancers interact in a modern world. As the on-demand economy continues to grow -- it's expected to generate $335 billion in global revenues according to PwC -- more companies are leveraging on-demand professionals in an effort to optimize labor costs, become more flexible and stay responsive to fluctuating customer demands.

"The on-demand economy has raised important questions about how we support, govern and protect a new class of independent workers," said Wald. "I look forward to having a much-needed discussion about the role of on-demand labor in today's economy and advancing the conversation in a way that brings about real and meaningful change."
